Sat-Isabgol is derived from the seeds of plant called 'Plantaqo Ovata'. Sat-Isabgol is also known as Psyllium Husks, Sat-Isabgol, and Ispaqhula. This is an annual herb grown in Gujarat & Rajasthan States of India. Sat-Isabgol is nothing but a filmy upper layer of Isabgol Seeds. It has a significant property of absorbing water and form a bulk mucilage. Its action is purely mechanical and its efficiancy is entirely due to the large quantity of mucilage present in the husks.
Currently Sat-Isabgol is most oftenly used as a bulk fiber in foods supplements.
